Normal Midwifery Practice

October 2012 | 200 pages | Learning Matters
For new students the language and concepts of midwifery care can at first be daunting. This book helps students to understand the expectations of midwifery training in relation to normal midwifery practice. It covers the basics of midwifery care including professional practice, frameworks informing midwifery care, key concepts and philosophies of care, communication and care skills, antenatal care, normal labour and birth, postnatal care, neonatal care and breastfeeding, as well as a brief introduction to medicines management in normal midwifery care. The book is designed to work alongside first taught modules in midwifery, and underpin training in subsequent years.

This is a good text for year 1 midwifery students. It covers the basics in an easy to follow and read format without overwhelming the first year student.

this book has all the key elements for practice especially third stage of labour, normal birth etc. this book also has a good section on medicines management which is key in the current complexity. Students and new mentors can occasionally find this complex

A user friendly text with numerous examples sign posting students with regard to their clinical and professional development. Clear links with expectations of pre-registration standards throughout. This is a really useful book.

This is a great book for midwives at the beginning of their training and portable too unlike some of the traditional midwifery texts

This is a very well designed text book. It is logical in approach and supports the learing of the student by providing guidance and activities of learning, I did like the inclusion of web sites and also the inclusion of some answers is helpful for the learning process.
I do like the bite size content, which encourages further exploration of the subject matter by the studnts, and the use of diagrams and tables supports all learning styles
